Description

Choice Proof Perforated
1884 Cent, Judd-1721

1884 1C One Cent, Judd-1721, Pollock-1929, R.5, PR64 PCGS. CAC. Slightly wavy and holed at the center (all as made) with the perforation slightly out of round. These experimental pieces were intended to make small denomination coinage easier to distinguish by the blind, and thereby to "remedy the inconvenience of similarity in our small coin." The obverse bears the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA about the upper rim and the date at the bottom. The reverse shows the denomination ONE CENT at the top with an inverted shield and two laurel sprigs below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Although struck in 1884, this design dates back to the 1870s. Approximately two dozen of these pieces are known today in nickel, and the holes are slightly irregular on all we have seen, suggesting they were hand-cut. The surfaces are gray-brilliant with the occasional speck of carbon scattered over each side.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 8510. (NGC ID# 2AL9, PCGS# 62150)
